Former Majical Cloudz singer Devon Welsh has been pretty quiet since the band broke up in 2016. He shared a collection of unreleased material later that year and contributed to an experimental project with Matthew E. Duffy, Belave, last year, along with a few other one-off releases. He recently shared another new solo song, "I'll Be Your Ladder," and you can watch the video for it below. It should immediately appeal to anyone who enjoyed Devon's work with Majical Cloudz - the soaring vocals are there, along with a sense of intimacy that stops just short of being claustrophobic, backed by poignant, stirring horns and synths.
Devon hasn't announced a full tour, but he is playing a few upcoming shows, including June 27 at NYC's Park Church Co-Op, which recently started hosting shows again after being given a funding extension (tickets), and June 29 at The Getty Center in Los Angeles which is part of their Friday Flights series. There are also Toronto and Montreal shows. All dates are listed below.
